For the fall 2022 semester, the ASPSF awarded 45 scholarships in the nine-county region that includes Clark, Dallas, Garland, Grant, Montgomery, Pope, Pike, Howard and Hot Spring. A total of $45,600 in scholarships were awarded. Locally, scholarship funds were made possible by the Ross Foundation, Vickie Faust, Entergy, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education and the ASPSF.

The ASPSF was established 32 years ago in Northwest Arkansas and has since broadened its reach throughout the state. To apply for future scholarships, to volunteer or for more information, visit ASPSF’s website.
